I’ve been less than diligent about updating lately, due in part to a parade of illness. It began with Leah getting a terrible cough, then Darwin got a cold, which she promptly shared with Leah. This cold came with coughing, vomiting, and a low-grade fever, and caused us to cancel Darwin’s birthday party. Over which I am still pretty heartbroken.
The icing on the cake was when Darwin went down for a late nap yesterday (just in time to make us late for our friends’ twins birthday party), and woke up with a fever of 103.4 degrees. Poor kid was miserable. Leah had a migraine, and I started getting a sore throat. All I could do was laugh.
This morning Darwin woke up at 5:30 (2 hours earlier than usual, and after nursing most of the night), but her fever was down to 100.1. Thank goodness. Hopefully we’re on an upswing and I’ll have the time and energy to write a 12 month post, and talk about our awesome new childcare swap!
